Abbie Ann by Sharlene MacLaren

Abbie Ann is the third and final installment in Sharlene MacLaren's The Daughters Of Jacob Kane series and it isn't often that I finish reading a series that leaves me with such a sense of satisfaction. Though it was hard to bid farewell to the Kane family, this book ended the series perfectly.

Abbie Ann is the youngest of Jacob Kane's three daughters, and is the only one still single. That may have something to do with her involvement in the Womens Christian Temperance Union. She also helps run the family general store and happens to be at work when a new man in town is thrown into her life as a result of his wagon bursting right through the front window of the store. When her eyes meet Noah's there is a spark of attraction, even more than with the man she's been courting for the past several months.

Abbie fights her feelings for Noah once she finds out he's recently divorced and she tries to muster up feelings for the man she's courting, all the while leading her WCTU meetings against the towns taverns which leads to even more trouble. Anonymous threats and peculiar encounters lead to a showdown which threatens her life.

In the end Abbie finds herself safe in the arms of love, but which man does she choose? You'll have to read for yourself to find out. At 500 pages, this book does not disappoint, nor does it drag on and on. I'm telling you, it's the perfect ending to the series!

Here are all three books:

Songbird Under a German Moon

Take a trip back to Germany at the end of World War II with Betty as she arrives by plane to entertain soldiers. Songbird Under A German Moon by Tricia Goyer is an interesting look into history with murder, intrigue and even a love story.
This book started a little slow but quickly picked up pace and became a real page-turner for me. Tricia really brought the characters to life and I could picture the theater where Betty worked and the boarding house where she lived. I enjoyed reading about Germany in post WW II.
About the book:
The year is 1945. The war is over and 21-year-old Betty Lake has been invited to Europe to sing in a USO tour for American soldiers who now occupy Hitler's Germany. The first nights performance is a hit. Betty becomes enthralled with the applause, the former Nazi-held mansion they're housed in and the attention of Frank Witt, the US Army Signal Corp Photographer. Yet the next night this songbird is ready to fly the coop when Betty's dear friend, Kat, turns up missing. Betty soon realizes Franks photographs could be the key to finding Kat. Betty and Frank team up against post-war Nazi influences and the two lovebirds' hearts may find the each other. But will they have a chance for their romance to sing? The truth will be revealed under a German moon.
About the author:
Tricia Goyer is the author of twenty books including From Dust and Ashes, My Life UnScripted, and the children's book, 10 Minutes to Showtime. She won Historical Novel of the Year in 2005 and 2006 from ACFW, and was honored with the Writer of the Year award from Mt. Hermon Writer's Conference in 2003. Tricia's book Life Interrupted was a finalist for the Gold Medallion in 2005. In addition to her novels, Tricia writes non-fiction books and magazine articles for publications like Today's Christian Woman and Focus on the Family. Tricia is a regular speaker at conventions and conferences, and has been a workshop presenter at the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International Conventions. She and her family make their home in the mountains of Montana.

Blood Ransom by Lisa Harris

New from Zondervan, Blood Ransom by Lisa Harris is a fast-paced adventure set deep in Africa. Natalie Sinclair works in villages, helping to rid the people of disease. She's heard the stories of Ghost Soldiers, but no one believes that they exist. Why would Ghost Soldiers empty villages of their inhabitants and leave nothing behind except for some blood on the ground? Natalie befriends one of her translators, Joseph, and he brings back shocking evidence that this indeed is happening. And it happened in his village, to his family. He has the pictures to prove it.
Follow Natalie as the next week unwinds in ways she could have never imagined. The pictures eventually pull her into discovering government cover-ups and even a plot to kill the current president.
Lisa Harris has written a book that does much more than entertain the reader. It leaves the reader with a lot to think about. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our little lives that we forget the injustice that goes on in the world around us.
Fantastic book! Short chapters which makes it easy to pick up when you've got a few minutes in between loads of laundry.
For more info click here.
About the author:
Lisa Harris has been writing both fiction and nonfiction since 2000 and has more than 15 novels and novellas in print. She currently lives with her family in Mozambique, Africa, where they serve as missionaries. Visit her website here. And her blog here.

Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

While I haven't had time to read this book yet I can testify that NO ONE does historical Biblical fiction like Liz Curtis Higgs. She takes a familiar story and turns it into a work of art. Her books take time to read (more time than I've had in the past few months) because she takes you into another time-old Scotland-and you want to savor every bit of it.

About the book:
A mother who cannot face her future.
A daughter who cannot escape her past.

Lady Elisabeth Kerr is a keeper of secrets. A Highlander by birth and a Lowlander by marriage, she honors the auld ways, even as doubts and fears stir deep within her.
Her husband, Lord Donald, has secrets of his own, well hidden from the household, yet whispered among the town gossips.
His mother, the dowager Lady Marjory, hides gold beneath her floor and guilt inside her heart. Though her two abiding passions are maintaining her place in society and coddling her grown sons, Marjory’s many regrets, buried in Greyfriars Churchyard, continue to plague her.
One by one the Kerr family secrets begin to surface, even as bonny Prince Charlie and his rebel army ride into Edinburgh in September 1745, intent on capturing the crown.
A timeless story of love and betrayal, loss and redemption, flickering against the vivid backdrop of eighteenth-century Scotland,
Here Burns My Candle illumines the dark side of human nature, even as hope, the brightest of tapers, lights the way home.

About Liz:
LIZ CURTIS HIGGS is the author of twenty-seven books with three million copies in print, including: her best-selling historical novels, Thorn in My Heart, Fair Is the Rose, Christy Award-winner Whence Came a Prince, and Grace in Thine Eyes, a Christy Award finalist; My Heart’s in the Lowlands: Ten Days in Bonny Scotland, an armchair travel guide to Galloway; and her contemporary novels, Mixed Signals, a Rita Award finalist, and Bookends, a Christy Award finalist.

What's In The Bible by Phil Vischer

Phil Vischer. Remember him? He's the guy who brought us Veggie Tales. Ahhh, nothing like Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber (and his alter-ego Larry-Boy!) Veggie Tales were a staple in our house as our kids were growing up. Release day of new episodes called for a 45 minute drive to the closest Christian bookstore that carried the videos and a 45 minute return trip before we could enjoy our new treasure.

Did you know:
Kids today consume a staggering five hours of media each day, and may spend about one hour a week in church. Seven out of ten American adults believe kids receive inadequate spiritual instruction. For conservative Christians, the number rises to nine out of ten. It’s no wonder the Church is so biblically illiterate:

· 64% of Americans said they did not read the Bible because they are too busy.

· In a report on America’s religious illiteracy, USA Today reported that 50% of high school seniors think Sodom and Gomorrah were married.

· A 2000 study showed that 60% of evangelical Christians believed that Jesus was born in Jerusalem rather than Bethlehem.

· Only half of American adults can name even one of the four Gospels

Finally, Phil is back! And this time he takes us though the Bible.

This brand new 13-part series from Tyndale combines the silliness that we expect from Vischer and the seriousness of the lesson he wants to teach. Vischer uses live action, animation and puppets to get his message across to kids of all ages. He's even got some singing Elvis-type guys in full 1970s garb to help him out. I loved the interaction between Phil and the puppets in the first and second episodes.

In The Beginning introduces the Bible to the viewer. It explains who wrote the books of Bible, who inspired it, what the Bible is and of course includes some of the songs that Vischer is famous for ("Did he just say buy-uh-bull?") Follow Jelly-News anchor Buck Denver as he tells the story like no one has before.

Let My People Go continues our trek through the Bible with more stories of the Old Testament, including all about Moses and teaching us exactly what a covenant is. Phil's long-awaited return was definitely worth the wait!

This DVD series will have your little ones captivated and I'm sure will lead to them acting out their own Bible-hero adventures.

I have two coupons for a FREE copy of this DVD. Leave a comment below to be entered to win. Promote this contest on Facebook or Twitter for an extra entry (just let me know that you did it!)

Everyone Communicates Few Connect by John C. Maxwell

John C. Maxwell is back with an engaging book, Everyone Communicates Few Connect, that will teach you how to connect with your audience. Whether you have an audience of one, ten or ten thousand, this book gives examples of how to be your best with each. Maxwell share several of his mistakes in hopes of helping the reader to learn from them. He also shares some successes, but in a humble way-not for his own glory, but to show what works.

This book was very easy to read and is proof that Maxwell is an excellent communicator. Each chapter closes with a section on how to apply what you learned in that chapter in three different ways. How to connect better one on one, with a group and with an audience. Maxwell proves in this book that connecting one on one is just as important as connecting with a large group.

My favorite part of this book was when Maxwell mentioned how humor can help you connect to your audience. I wholeheartedly concur! I loved the section where he talked about signs in other countries relaying a message wrong. Too funny!

Start Here by Alex & Brett Harris

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
Start Here is the newest book by brothers Alex & Brett Harris. It follows their debut Do Hard Things which was written when they were eighteen years old. This book takes their original one a step further and gives detailed instructions on how to do the hard things. Pulling from the success stories of people all over the world, this is also a celebration of what the young can do for the Lord.

Start Here also focuses on remembering that it isn't for your own glory that you do these things, that it's for the Lord and to further His kingdom. Emphasis is placed on reminding the reader to maintain humility and to make sure they're doing these things with the right motives.

If you're unsure of where to start, there's even a list of 100 Hard Things in the back of the book to give you ideas. A study guide is also included.

This book is an excellent resource for teens, parents and even youth groups. Why do we keep the hard things from our youth? Give them the reigns and let them fly!

You can purchase this book here. Or win a copy by commenting below. I've got one to give away.

Congrats to Renee (anonymous) who won this copy.

Enter to Worship-Exit to Serve by Ronald K Gray

Ronald K. Gray – Enter to Worship – Exit To Serve

Interview with the author:

  1. What is the book about? While the book’s title puts it in the praise and worship section in book stores, the book is more about the total life of the believer. Nehemiah10:39 is the core scripture for the book’s teachings. Nehemiah had gone to Jerusalem to rebuild the walls and also rebuilt the temple, restoring worship to the people. Worship was centered around sacrifice. I use the different groups pictured in Nehemiah to talk about fundamental areas of the believers life. The scripture says they would not forsake the temple of God. We have forsaken the house of God today. We are so busy with our agendas, we have left the true reason for worship. God is looking for something real from our lives, not just our words.

2.Why Enter to Worship and Exit to Serve? The life of the believer comes from our life in God. We bring to Him a sacrifice of our monies, our gifts, our fruit and lay it at His feet. The premise for most Christians today is what can God do for them instead of how can I worship God with all that is within me. The scriptures teach us that everyone has something to offer. When we worship in the fullness of our lives, God then fills us to be able to affect our world. We then exit to serve God through proclaiming His Word, serving those around us and exalting His name in all the earth. Everything we do in church is to help us fulfill God’s calling on our lives in the world.

  1. Why do you talk about money? The very first thing that was brought into the temple was an offering of grain or corn. This is symbolic of money. I go to Kenya every year and they trade their corn for other items such as meat, oil, etc. God is interested in our money. He speaks of money more than He does either prayer or heaven. I think there has been a lot of negative about money and there has been a lot of error through the years. I hope that what I teach in the book is balanced. Many pastors have said this teaching has helped their churches understand the truth about tithes, first fruits and seed offerings.
  1. What do you think is the most important chapter of the book? In over 35 years of full time ministry, I have never heard anyone else teach about porters. In Nehemiah 10:39 it lists porters between priest and singers. I thought that was very interesting and researched porters. It is basically a janitor. So between priests and porters are janitors. Servants that do the basics. People who do ordinary things to keep ministries going. God wants servants. That is a concept that is lost in the big time world of church ministries today. Jesus came to serve. I believe that we can make a difference in our community, our neighborhoods, and our world if we are willing to lay our lives down to serve God.
  1. What do you hope to accomplish with your book? I hope that ordinary believers will recognize they have something to offer. We can bring our monies and touch the nations. We can bring our gifts and see the power of God touch people and their needs. We can offer our fruit and not wait for the pastors or elders, but be instruments to bring life to those around us who are seeking a relevant relationship with Jesus. The five fold ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher were never supposed to do everything in the church. The church is supposed to be equipped for ministry. Everyone should be able to proclaim the message and everyone should have praise for the God we serve. That should not happen just on Sunday mornings between 10 a.m. and 12 noon. We should be able to give God praise in our homes and throughout the week. I truly believe this can be the church’s finest hour.
  1. Where are these resources available to purchase? You can obtain this book and many other resources on my web site at
  1. Are there other available resources connected with this book? Yes, I taught my book at a conference and had it professionally recorded on video and audio. These sessions are great for small groups and Bible studies. There is a Study Guide to help the leader go through the sessions. The book and the video provide different insights that will help people to grow into maturity.

What Your Son Isn't Telling You by Michael Ross & Susie Shellenberger

Teenagers are a mystery to adults, even though we were that age ourselves not so very long ago. What Your Son Isn't Telling You by Michael Ross and Susie Shellenberger is packed full of secrets of the teenage boy. Once you unlock the secrets, at the end of each chapter you'll find either questions or suggestions on how to get the most out of your relationship with your son. There are also ideas of what to pray for and how to approach these topics with your child. This book deals with everything from masturbation to porn, from bullying to depression & anger. You'll find out what your son needs from mom and what he needs from dad. There is so much packed into this book that I'll probably pull it out and read it again a few times for the duration of my sons teen years.

About the book:

Full of practical help, What Your Son Isn't Telling You gives parents behind-the-scenes footage they can miss in the day-to-day life of their son. Parents will begin to see and understand not only the world in which their teenage sons exist, but also their struggle to become their own person versus the desire to measure up as man by conforming to a false code of always being a tough guy, never showing weakness, and never expressing true feelings.

Each chapter of this must-read book is packed with real-life stories and emails from teen boys that will give parents a new understanding of what their sons aren't telling them.

If you are the parent of a teen boy then this is a must read! This book is published by Bethany House and was provided for review by the publisher.

Once in a Blue Moon by Leanna Ellis

Last year I was over the moon for Leanna Ellis' book Ruby's Slippers. Leanna is back again, this time with Once in a Blue Moon.
From the back cover:
She was only nine years old when her mother died under mysterious circumstances on the same day Apollo 11 made its historic lunar landing. In the decades since, thrill-seeking journalist Bryn Seymour has defied gravity, pushing each moment to count. Inwardly, though, she's resisted any close encounters. Skydiving is easy. Staying in a relationship? Not so much.

On assignment to write about the fortieth anniversary of the fortieth moon-walk, Bryn meets Howard, a loopy old gent full of conspiracy theories who drops a bomb on her world: he knew her mother. Could a small Texas town hold the secret to her mother's demise? Seeking closure, Bryn goes along for this men-in-black ride. But upon meeting Howard's attractive son Sam, an outspoken Christian, she can't decide whose beliefs are more pie-in-the-sky.

The gravity of life has always pulled Bryn back down to earth, but a perfect love could be her first step to soaring. The kind of love that only happens once in a blue moon.

To view a trailer of this book click here and then you can enter Leanna's site and learn more about her and her other books.

I love Leanna's books. They are adventurous, fun and easy to read. This one is no exception. Leanna takes the reader on a journey through the past and throws in a little mystery, a crazy old man (that Howard is a hoot!) and a lot of love. Laugh out loud with Bryn as she takes this magical journey into her past which ends up slamming into her future.

One of these sons of thunder offers a future she longs for, the other the past she lost. From the sultry Chicago jazz clubs of the roaring twenties to the World War II battlefields of Europe to a final showdown in a Greek island village, theyll discover betrayal, sacrifice and finally redemption. Most of all, when Sophie is forced to make her choice, she'll learn that God honors the promises made by the Sons of Thunder.

Mother-Daughter Duet by Cheri Fuller & Ali Plum

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
Are you longing for more of a relationship with your adult daughter? Mother Daughter Duet by Cheri Fuller and Ali Plum explores the ins and outs of the sometimes tumultuous relationship that mothers and daughters share once the daughter is an adult. Cheri and Ali share from their own struggles as a mother and daughter who are searching for common ground in an unsteady relationship. Both share mistakes and lessons learned. If you want to tear down the walls that are keeping you from a relationship that will thrive instead of one full of tension then this is the perfect book for you.
You can purchase it here.
About the book:

When a daughter is born, her mother has a thousand hopes and dreams for her, especially that they will be best friends one day.

Unfortunately, even the best of intentions can go awry. There are so many challenges on the journey to adult friendship that the reality is fraught with friction

and frustration. But a harmonious relationship is possible.

Award-winning author Cheri Fuller and her daughter, Ali Plum, have been there and have discovered the keys to a healthy relationship. In Mother-Daughter Duet they share their story—each from her own perspective—in which they have experienced distance and tension, growth and challenge, and, ultimately, acceptance and harmony. Filled with personal anecdotes and based on several basic principles (letting go; listening; respect; setting boundaries; and more), Mother-Daughter Duet helps moms repair the breach so that daughters want to draw close.

The mother-daughter dynamic is intense, personal, complex, and unique. But mothers and daughters can achieve mutual respect and learn to celebrate their differences when they learn the two-part harmony of the mother-daughter duet.

About the authors:

Cheri Fuller is a best-selling, award-winning author whose books have sold more than one million copies. She speaks to a wide range of women at women’s conferences and is a frequent guest on national radio and television programs.

Ali Plum is Cheri’s daughter, a writer and songwriter, a wife, and a mother to Noah and Luke. She and her mom have weathered the ups and downs of their relationship to find one of the most treasured, honest relationships of their lives. Ali has recorded background vocals for popular musicians, and Mother-Daughter Duet marks her debut into book publishing.

Well written and thought invoking this book will help you get more out of your life with Christ.

The reality of living in a broken, fallen world can leave women feeling overcome by fear, guilt, and weariness. Many develop “sawdust souls,” numb to any sense of joy.

With the voice of a trusted mentor, she reveals how, by getting in tune with the rhythm of God’s presence, women can nurture an inner attitude of anticipation and celebration even in the stressful seasons of life.
